Farooq Resigns As NC President; New Party Prez Polls To Be Held On December 5


Dr. Farooq Abdullah has resigned as the party’s president, and elections are due to take place next month, thus the Jammu and Kashmir National Conference will soon have a new president.

Omar Abdullah, a former chief minister and vice president of the party, is most likely to succeed as president. The election scheduled on December 5 will, however, determine that.

Tanvir Sadiq, the chief spokesman for the party, was quoted by Excelsior as saying that Abdullah has resigned as NC president and that elections would take place on December 5. The mausoleum of the party’s founder, Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah, at Hazratbal, would host the polls, he claimed, and a notice to that effect will be issued soon.

Prior to this announcement, Abdullah made it known that he would be stepping down as party leader at a meeting of the In-charge Segments, district presidents, and other provincial office bearers held at the party headquarters in Nawa-e-Subha, Srinagar. But he will stay in office until the elections are held.

Dr. Abdullah announced his choice and urged the party leaders to take control of the party in an emotional speech at the party headquarters while crying. He said that his health no longer allowed him to lead the party.

In the discussion, Abdullah urged the party’s officials to grow the organisation and connect with voters in their various districts.
The current state of the Valley and party issues were discussed at the conference. The party officials also gave the party president an update on the ongoing party events in their respective sectors.

Abdullah outlined the difficulties that the populace was experiencing and urged them to collaborate closely with locals.
“Our ground force must serve as a link between the government and the populace. We must prioritise the needs of the general populace in addition to our just and peaceful campaign for the restoration of our rights. To ease people’s difficulties, you must provide excellent service, he stated.

The constituency in-charges were instructed by the senior party officials to be prepared for elections whenever they take place. They said that because the NC had already passed a resolution to this effect, there would be no pre-poll alliance.
They said that the PAGD would continue to function as a forum and that each party would run its own campaign. “It serves a greater cause. It is a platform for the defence of Article 370 and Statehood, not for any pre-election coalition, they said.

Omar Abdullah, the vice president of the party, also spoke to the crowd. He also emphasised the need for party building.
Ali Muhammad Sagar, the party’s general secretary, provincial president Nasir Aslam Wani, chief spokesperson Tanvir Sadiq, senior leaders Abdul Rahim Rather, Mubarak Gul, Shameema Firdous, Nazir Gurezi, and Muhammad Syed Akhoon, Zonal Presidents Ali Muhammad Dar and Javed Dar, Dr. Bashir Ahmed Veeri, district presidents, constituency in-charges, and other provincial office holders were also present.
